at midway. the winds sustained at 20 there and 69 at hebron and joliet at 70 degrees at this hour. we will spend the afternoon under the clouds. these are called backwash clouds because they swing around the back side of the storm and that's this little curl right here. 9 low pressure center starts out here on this 24 hour loop in south dakota and tracks something like that. the main rains have exited the area, though sprinkles are a possibility and here is the area bombarded by the hail stones we just saw up to six inches of rain flooded roads and parts of kansas and into western missouri and then there was a huge swath of heavy rain from eastern south dakota all the way into michigan and through wisconsin. look at the rains since 7:00 this morning as tracked by the doppler radar and see our northern suburbs were favored for the heaviest rain and southern suburbs missed out on the heaviest of the rain. it's clear there is a circulation here. you can see it carved on the clouds and see that sunshine will be at a premium this afternoon. not totally absent but not very frequent. that's

, the attack recently in hebron strengthened the narrative of the israelis, particularly the narrative of benjamin netanyahu and talk security, security, security. and... so the whole process is still brittle. and it takes only small groups, not only hamas to undermine it. and i think the three sides realize this and that's why it's very important for all of them to condemn it and contain it and deal with it and go beyond it. i think hamas and the others, the rejectionists on the arab side, palestinian side or the israeli side are willing to see real progress and that's the challenge for the administration now. >> woodruff: you mean for the obama administration? >> for the obama administration, exactly. and for netanyahu to prove that he's going to be as daniel was saying have that transformation from the old rejectionist, the one who wanted to give the palestinians very little, the one who it's very hard for him to accept that they have a stake in the land that... where these two people exist and yesterday he said that and the palestinians are taking it too heart. and that's why they

as well. significant that the backdrop for these talks of course is that horrific attack in hebron, the west bank, four israeli settlers killed could have the potential to derail these talks but instead president obama was very firm, a president who as we know has been accused of snubbing prime minister netanyahu in a previous visit to the white house, accused of not being enough of a friend to israel, very direct in saying he stands behind israel in the wake of this attack and vowed this would not derail the talks. it was very clear that the prime minister was thankful for that comment. >> the tragedy we saw yesterday where people were gunned down on the street by terrorists who are purposely trying to undermine these talks is an example of what we're up against. but i want everybody to be very clear. the united states is going to be unwavering in its support of israel's security and we are going to push back against these kinds of terrorist activities. >> i think that the president's statement is an expression of our desire to fight against this terror and the talks that we had w
